General description

Light a bit flat smoky one, different from Islay and Ireland. Ok whisky but for the price I expected definitely more.

Nose

Smoke, flowers, sweetness, pepper notes, weak after a while, around 20 ppm.

Palate

Smoke, bitter, sweet, peppery, butterscotch a bit flat.

Finish

Medium, smoke lasts, something like oily, covering gums. It lasts on gums and tongue, mouth warming, bit dry.

General description

Surprising peaty nose held promise, but the palate is way too simple and bland to be compared to the likes of Ardbeg 10 or Laphroiag 10. Disappointing, and this does not even have the Irish goodness like Redbreast. Will not buy again.
